Buddy Lucas and Jesse Powell
Almost at the end of the quick survey of 1950s NYC rock 'n' roll / R&B sax players. The "Gone All Stars" were led by Buddy Lucas who was a pretty ubiquitous figure on the New York recording scene, playing on many sessions for Jubilee, Groove, Savoy and a multiplicity of small labels. As well as leading his own groups, Buddy recorded with the Orioles, Little Anthony, Frankie Lymon, Edna McGriff, Little Willie John among many, many others.
Joan K supplied the rips and scans from the "Dancin' Bandstand" EP plus the "7-11" single. The original post (from 2008) is situated here:
Jesse Powell, like Buddy Lucas, recorded on many rock 'n' roll / R&B sessions for NYC based labels such as Jubilee and Josie, being especially associated with recordings by The Cadillacs. El Enmascarado supplied the Jubilee LP "Blow Man Blow" which despite its rousing title is a collection of ballad performances by Jesse.

This is a site dedicated to rockin' 1940s and 1950s music, ripped from vinyl. Some cuts are a bit on the rough side. If you're looking for audio perfection you're on the wrong site baby! If you like what you hear on this site please buy this kind of music. There are many reasonably priced reissues available from web dealers or perhaps from your local record shop, if it still exists. These reissues will be in far better sound quality than the vinyl rips on this site and they will usually have more up to date liner notes and info, so go out and splash a little cash now and again. Help keep those reissue labels going in these difficult times.
No in-print CDs will be posted here. In fact no CDs will be posted here. I will occasionally list recommended purchases to help you hear more from artists featured on the blog.
"The night is the corridor of history, not the history of famous people or great events, but that of the marginal, the ignored, the supressed, the unacknowledged; the history of vice, of error, of confusion, of fear, of want; the history of intoxication, of vainglory, of delusion, of dissipation, of delirium."
